5. Cut a small sprig of elodea using scissors (make an angular cut in the stem) and place the plant bit in each of the test tubes. Then stopper them. Label each with the time, date and group number.
6. Add the words “no sun” to one of the test tubes using the wax pencil and wrap it with black construction paper, taping it in place so that no sunlight can get in.
7. Place both test tubes in a holder in front of a light source (sunny window or grow light) so that they both get the same amount of warmth even though one will get no light.

Photosynthesis Lab - Elodea and Bromthymol Blue

Experiment - The Elements of Photosynthesis Worksheet
1. How did blowing into the water and bromothymol blue provide one of the elements needed for photsynthesis?

2. How did adding the elodea (pond weed) to the test tube and setting it in front of light cause the color of the liquid to change?

3. Why did the liquid in the test tube covered in black paper not change color the way the uncovered liquid did?

Photosynthesis-Elodea Lab Photosynthesis is the process by which ..

Goals: For photosynthesis to occur, a plant needs sunlight, water and carbon dioxide. To see photosynthesis in action, we will observe how a green plant (elodea) uses sunlight to take in CO2 and release O2 (control). In addition, we will deny sunlight to another specimen, to observe how photosynthesis does not occur without sunlight. Follow the procedures below to complete this experiment.

(two per group) test tubes, stoppers, straws
(one per group) wax pencil, scissors, eye droppers, measuring beaker
specimens of elodea (from local pet store)
light source (grow light or sunny window)
bromothymol blue (BTB) as a CO2 indicator
tap water that has sat out for at least 24 hours (chlorine will evaporate)
black construction paper and tape

Break students down into groups of 3-4 with each group getting a set of two test tubes. Students in each group should take turns completing each of the following steps in each group.
1. Measure 40ml of the prepared tap water into each of their two test tubes.
2. Using the eye dropper, add about 100 drops of the bromothymol blue into each of the test tubes.
Important Fact: Bromothymol blue is used as an indictor for the presence of carbon dioxide.
3. Using a separate straw for each test tube, mix the water and bromothymol blue in each of the test tubes (leaving the straws in each test tubes afterward).

The test tube will be neutral because the CO2 and glucose will balance each other.
Cellular Respiration in the Dark
There will be elodea in the photosynthesis test tube because only plants and some protists do the process of photosynthesis.

Bromothymol blue is an indicator solution to those ..

This way, we are able to observe the differences in the changes that occur when the bromothymol blue is added and what happens otherwise.
CR/Photosynthesis (light)
This will contain elodea and snails because both cellular respiration and photosynthesis need to occur.
